Junta de vecinos #9

(Neighbourhood reunion #9)

Installation
540 x 300cm
ARTBO
Bogota, Colombia
2018

Neighbourhood reunion #9 was an installation specifically done for ARTBO (Bogota, Colombia). It consists of a wall containing 164 pieces of paint taken from the facades of houses and shops of Santiago, Chile. Each fragment was placed 30cm away from the other over a reticulated wall surface of 540 x 300cm.

It’s an exercise on abstraction that tells of the materials present on the facades of the city’s central district. In this version the fragments have been distributed according to a grid that alludes to the chess board model applied to the design of Santiago: the traditional model of Spanish urbanism in Latin America, one that organizes the city designing streets in right angles and, therefore, in blocks.
